If you can get on a friends computer build the UBCD4Win this will give you full read/write access to your hdd.

Copy the needed files across from the original install media into the system32 folder.

Then do the following from the ubcd4win CD:

Go -> Programs -> System Tools -> Check Disk

Type C if this is your partition containing the operating system, adjust according if these files are on a different partition ie D, E etc....

Do you want to fix errors .....:
Enter Y

Start check disk?
Enter Y

Then defrag the Hard Drive with Dirms.

Go -> Command prompt
Then type the following
dirms C -q

This will defrag the hard drive, once completed reboot.
Your system should now boot.
If this still doesn't work you will need to do a repair installation of XP.


This should fix the problem.
